The use of cloud computing and cloud services has increased exponentially over the past years. Cloud initially offered a cost-effective and convenient way to store data. Since the inception of the cloud, it has been driving business value and streamlining how organizations have been conducting their IT operations.
AWS (Amazon Web Services) and Microsoft Azure are the two major and established players providing cloud services to organizations worldwide. By leveraging these cloud services, organizations aggressively engage with customers, grow their CRMs, develop apps, and administer businesses more efficiently. According to Techjury, 61% of companies migrated their workloads to the cloud in 2020. Cloud adoption statistics also reveal that in 2020 a staggering 83% of the companies' workload was stored on the cloud.
These statistics reveal that organizations have either moved to the cloud or are aggressively migrating to the cloud. Every cloud provider offers various deployment models that identify the right cloud environment based on ownership, scale, and access, and the cloud's nature and purpose. This helps identify how the cloud infrastructure will look, required changes, and accessibility. From a bird's eye view, cloud computing deployment models can be classified as public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, community cloud, and multi-cloud.
In this webinar, you will get an in-depth understanding of all the aspects of cloud computing and infrastructure, including:
- Key cloud characteristics
- Commonly used cloud service models
- Frequently used cloud deployment models
- Significant benefits of migrating your operations to the cloud
